Third Wave Foundation Offers Funding for Organizations Led by Young Women and Transgender Youth
Deadline: November 1, 2007

The Third Wave Foundation (<a href=""></a>) is an activist feminist foundation that works nationally to support young women and transgender youth. Through strategic grantmaking, leadership development, and philanthropic advocacy, Third Wave supports groups and individuals working to achieve gender, racial, economic, and social justice.

In 2007, Third Wave will accept applications for Discretionary Grants of $1,000 to $3,000 each from both its Organizing and Advocacy Fund and Reproductive Health and Justice Initiative to help organizations led by young women and transgender youth to support technical assistance, skills development of staff or board members, or organizational capacity. Examples of activities that may be funded include training for staff or board members, or attendance at important movement-building conferences.

The foundation accepts proposals for emerging or ongoing programs or organizations that benefit, target, and are developed and led by young women and/or transgender individuals between the ages of 15 and 30. In this grant cycle, Third Wave is especially interested in supporting work in underresourced U.S. geographic regions, including the Midwest, South, Southwest, and Southeast.

Discretionary grants do not fund individuals; national organizations or their chapters or programs, intermediaries, or subsidiaries; organizations outside the United States; and organizations with budgets exceeding $500,000.
